Fire it Up w/ Dharma
FIRE IT UP w/ DHARMA Sat. July 27/9pm $7
FIRE IT UP When the curtains on stage open up to reveal; a lead singer brandishing a keytar being played like it should never stand upright, a bassist pumping out groovy bass lines like a relic of Funkadelic, a drummer creating thunderous beats with all the frantic energy of the Muppets Animal, and a guitarist finding his perfect balance between shredding and harmonizing to bring it all together, then you have in front of you Chicago's own Fire It Up.
Fire It Up is comprised of four members; Rolando Medina on vocals and keys, JP Castaneda on drums, Louie Soto on bass, and Jonathan Masek on guitar. While their home base is firmly rooted in Chicago, their style of music is definitely a broad mix of styles, genres, and personal influences.
Sometimes described as being in a similar vein with that of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, and Depeche Mode. With each new addition to their musical library shows a glimpse of a deeper eclectic style that they have only reached the surface in scratching. Unifying each track is a deep rooted emotion and passion which is what Fire It Up is all about in their music.
DHARMA Dharma is an Alternative Rock band based in Chicago, Illinois. The band was formed in 2016 in Chicago by musicians from the US, Iraq, and Mexico. The band's diverse tempos, instrumentals, and multilingual lyrics place them as one of the icons of the multiculturalist Chicago. Dharma recently released its second single named “Why” which, just in the first month, has reached a fan base in Europe, Latin America, and the US. Dharma pursues to harmonize among sectors and cultures in a world where individualism is corrosive. Everyone is included in the circle of Dharma
Dharma recently performed for hundreds of Chicagoans at festivals such as Ruido Fest and Beach Fest, and multiple venues including venues Elbo Room, Wire, Chicago Botanic Garden, and Debonair Social Club, among many others.
